Kanade is the elder daughter of Sadao, the owner of Live House 696, and Shoichi's childhood friend.
She called out to Shoichi when he came back to Japan and had no place to go, offering him a live-in job at the club.
Although she's had feelings for Shoichi since they were little, she holds a complex of "I'm not someone who can match up to that" towards Shoichi, who basked in the limelight as a world-class musician at a young age, and hasn't been able to bring herself to confess.
She secretly believes that she wants to express herself through song, and while the talent she holds for that is amazing, her lack of self-confidence serves as a detriment that keeps her from pursuing her dream.
Though she's particularly affectionate towards Shoichi, Kanade is also the type of person who's kind enough to try and help anyone in trouble. As a result, she's never refused any favors or requests to help someone talk through their troubles. However, she holds a strong heart on the inside, and cannot let any prejudices towards music and her friends slip by.
Will that strength ever become the force that drives her towards her dream?
